We are pleased to announce the winning names of our "Name our Mascot" contest, and they are "Klem" and "Mandy" - male & female respectively. While we received over one hundred submissions, this play on Clementine and Mandarine was too good to resist, and we can humbly say we couldn't have come up with better names on our own - so the contest was indeed a success.
Truth be told, we invited our team members to participate in the contest, as well, and we received a lot of great submissions from them too. In fact, we received submissions from all across North America, and even a number from Swiftpage employees. However, since this was a contest designed for customers, we decided to guarantee at least two customer prizes and as many employee prizes as it took to select those two customers. As of last week, we had six winning entries, and yesterday we hosted the draw with the names listed in random order by our VP, Victor Krahn in Kitchener Ontario, and the numbers selected by our president, Ken Quigley in Toronto.
The winning names are as follows:
The other bit of good news for these winners is that we've upgraded the prize for each of them from the single processor 8" Samsung Tab A to the 8-processor 10" Samsung Tab A, which have bigger screens, more memory, and much faster performance than the model we originally announced we were giving away. Needless to say, we expect all these winners to appreciate the upgrade as much as we appreciate the time the took to participate in our contest.
The Tablets have all been ordered and are scheduled to arrive in our Toronto office on Friday, August 7th, and will be shipped out to the winner's addresses next week. We'll be calling each of them today to personally congratulate them for the win, as well as confirm their preferred shipping addresses.
Additionally, each of these winners will also receive a free subscription to Handleld Contact API for Android when it's released later this month or early September. We're really excited about this product that is currently in beta as it's the culmination of months of work that will deliver more data, more frequently, faster, and on more devices than ever before. You can learn more about our API products HERE.
Thanks again to all the employees and customers who participated in the "Name our Mascot" contest. We hope you all had as much fun with it as we did.
